Hey, Siri – Set Timer for 20 Seconds!

I had no idea what an incredibly long time 20 seconds was until we were instructed to wash our hands for a full 20 seconds. I’ve started using “Hey Siri” to make sure I am washing for the entire 20 seconds. Here are a few things you can do while you are waiting for your 20 seconds to end…

  1. 20 Squats. A lot of squats will result in getting fit if you are following the protocol several times a day.
  2. Sing Happy Birthday twice. At least two people somewhere in the world are having Birthdays.
  3. Use the Mindfulness app to meditate. We can all use some peace of mind now.
  4. Place your arms on the rim of the sink and stretch in a modified downward dog.
  5. Say an affirmation. “I am washing my hands, for myself and others.”

  6. Think about a friend or loved one you will call or text when you are finished.
  7. Make a hand washing poster with 20 second lyrics from your favorite song. https://washyourlyrics.com/
  8. Express your love and appreciation to your spouse (even though you’ve been cooped up with him or her WAY too long)l
  9. Play the Handwashing Song for the little ones.
  10. Keep up the habit even after this virus is over!
